The Kyocera Mita FS-C8026 is an affordable and fairly fast color laser printer with an environmentally-friendly and compact design. It would work quite well in a smaller office in its basic configuration, but the FS-C8026N version with networking support could be expanded to handle a larger number of users by adding optional upgrades. Kyocera Mita FS-C8026 printer toner can be expensive, but large capacities mean it won't need replacing frequently.
The FS-C8026 can print at up to 26 pages in black and white, and up to 13 pages per minute in color. It has a first page out time of around 9 seconds for a quick response, but its warm-up time when first turned on is very slow, at almost 3 minutes. A parallel port is included for a direct connection, but the FS-C8026N model includes an ethernet port for sharing it among multiple users, and is highly recommended.
There are a wide variety of upgrades available, so buyers can tailor its configuration to their needs. A duplex unit can be added for automatic two-sided printing, Document finisher options can handle tasks like sorting, hole-punching, and stapling, and extra paper trays can be added to bring the total input paper capacity to a maximum of 4,150 sheets, allowing it to handle very high printing volumes.
Replacing toners can be very expensive, but Kyocera Mita FS-C8026 toner cartridges have very large yields of up to 21,000 pages each. This translates to a very affordable cost per page, but the office budget will take a big hit when it is time to replace all of the Kyocera Mita FS-C8026 toner cartridges.
The base model of the FS-C8026 is impressive in its own right, but optional upgrades provide a lot of flexibility. Its print speeds could be faster, and its warm-up time is very slow. Small offices might find the cost of replacing Kyocera Mita FS-C8026 toner a little difficult to handle as well.
